A minimalistic method to do triplanar mapping exclusively in UV space. Has some downsides and limitations but super fast for certain things. Try it for grunge! Simply paste into a new Material Function to use.

Used for the grunge and the Stars & Stripes skin in this example.

    This works perfectly. It's the third Triplanar shader I tried and it is the best. Thanks a bunch!
